The Media and Political Process by Eric Louw
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Media and Political Process examines the increasingly topical subject of the political process and assesses: The nature of the relationship between mass media and the political process The impact of media-ization on existing political frameworks The implications of media-ized politics Eric Louw uses a number of case-studies including political, celebrity, war and terrorism to provide a media studies perspective on how media workers (journalists, public affairs officers, spin-doctors) impact upon the political process. The book also considers the media's role in promoting a range of twentieth century ideologies and emerging dominant discourses.
